comment Making sense of 「出てったって待ってて」
I'm not sure "went out" would be the most accurate way to say this.. of course it depends on context, but I think we can probably intuit that the speaker is talking about something bigger than something like leaving a building

comment What is the origin of ポイ as in “タバコのポイ”?
To me ポイ is one of those words that just clearly matches the action it describes.. is there a way to find a first recorded use of it at least?

comment Is there a kanji for しか?
Yeah, more a potentially interesting "fyi" than anything. The more I look the more I think しか just doesn't have kanji... I wonder how it was written in manyougana?

comment Is there a kanji for しか?
I don't think しかし and しか are related etymologically, but on the off chance... 然し is the kanji there

For what it's worth, the forvo link sounds like it matches the dictionary pronunciation to me.

comment What kinds of things can be an 愛機?
I guess probably the limited scope of 機 words that would have sentimental value?

comment Specific differences to consider between any individual katakana and hiragana?
Exactly. There are times where it's almost always written one way or another, but it's a matter of convention and not a specific property of the writing system.
